my grandfather was a captain in D company, i recently found that i have hundreds of letters in which he tells of his experiences in europe, i feel privileged to have this collection, he frequently mentions his men in these letters. if anyone has a relative who was in d company of the 714th, i would gladly keep an eye out for their names, and if found, share what he says. this collection isn't and never will be for sale, but out curiosity what is a collection like this worth?

Dear Hunter, I have forwarded you name and email
address to Dale Cartee, the President of the 12th
Armored Museum.

By the way, if your grandfather was involved in the liberation of the concentration camps at Landsberg, or Kaufering
(including Hurlach), or elsewhere, this would be of current interest. The Museum is organizing teaching materials about the holocaust for the schools.
